The “It’s Logical, dear Math!” Project is a three-year partnership project (September 2017 – August 2020) that aims to develop mathematical and logical thinking, using innovative activities and gamification strategies and involves five countries: Portugal, Italy, Hungary, Lithuania and Greece.
A vector of this project is to create a contest, mixing the PISA assessment and the national curriculum of each country. This competition will have gamification principles and will take place in two moments: in each country with national teams and, during the mobilities, with students from all partner countries.
All partners must contribute to these tests, and a very rich debate will take place during the process. 10th grade students will be involved in this process.
There will be five combined mobilities:
– Italy (May 2018),
– Greece (October 2018),
– Portugal (May 2019),
– Hungary (November 2019),
– Lithuania (May 2020).
These mobilities have three moments: before (virtual mobility), during (physical mobility) and after (virtual mobility).
Associated with each mobility, a theme was defined regarding the partner’s strongest points:
1- Algebra and Geometry;
2- Cube Game;
3- Programming with Scracth,
4- Mathematics with music,
Mobility results are intangible (growth of team spirit, development of intercultural and linguistic skills, development of practical, artistic and motor skills, increased visibility of schools, language skills, environmental and sustainability awareness, ICT and coding skills), but also tangible (drawings, exhibitions, photos, videos, final report, competition and evaluation).
